From the Inside Flap:

In the last ten years, across-the-board levels of employee engagement, job satisfaction, and workplace morale have plummeted in the United States. While most in corporate America are baffled by this decline, Kirk Snyder—one of the nation's leading career and workplace experts—undertook a long-range research project that has uncovered a unique exception to this trend in employee dissatisfaction.

The G Quotient identifies a management phenomenon that will change the way people view their professional roles in the workplace. Based on a landmark five-year study, The G Quotient redefines successful leadership for all managers. Organizations and working units under the leadership of white-collar gay males are collectively experiencing 35 percent higher levels of employee engagement, job satisfaction, and workplace morale—in addition to reporting greater employee loyalty and individual productivity. It is proof that today's employees are responding to a new type of organizational leader.

The term "G Quotient" represents seven unique leadership principles that explain why organizations and working units under the management of gay executives are more harmonious, interconnected, and successful. The G Quotient examines these unique principles, which any manager, regardless of gender or sexual orientation, can use to become the leader everyone wants to work for and the leader everyone wants to hire. The principles of G Quotient leadership are creating positive organizational benefits that

  • Engage and motivate employees
  • Encourage creativity and innovation
  • Promote change as a positive catalyst
  • Foster greater professional connection
  • Increase organizational communication
  • Capitalize on business intuition
  • Utilize inclusiveness as a commodity

G Quotient leaders featured in this book range from high-ranking executives from global corporations such as IBM, Morgan Stanley, and PepsiCo to top officials at world-class colleges and universities, including the University of Southern California and the University of California's Office of the President. Other featured leaders represent managers working in the public sector in addition to independent businesses. From a college president to a state senator to senior partners and CEOs, The G Quotient addresses all facets of this new type of successful leadership across a diverse spectrum of companies and organizations.

From the Back Cover:

What Do Managers from Barclay's Bank, Citicorp, Deloitte Consulting LLP, Disney, Ernst & Young, General Electric, and Morgan Stanley Know About The G Quotient?

Kirk Snyder's new book, The G Quotient, is based on a five-year study into the beliefs and behaviors of more than three thousand managers and employees across major economic sectors. The result is the identification of a new paradigm for successful business leadership that is generating unparalleled levels of employee engagement, job satisfaction, and workplace morale from Fortune 500 companies to entrepreneurial enterprises in all types of fields and industries.

Chronicling the dramatic changes of the new world of work, Snyder explains why employees of gay executives are responding to a new ethos of business leadership with record high levels of job commitment. The G Quotient provides all managers, whether managing teams of a few or a few thousand, with vital information and insight about fully engaging the strengths and talents of today's workforce.

The G Quotient—Named to Harvard Business Review's 2006 Reading List

"The G Quotient is a clarion call to all leaders wanting to successfully lead others and build winning twenty-first-century organizations. It is a call to authenticity, to presence, and to leading by being fully human."
—Andrew Fenniman, principal, The Exetor Group, LLC

"The G Quotient is for any executive, regardless of gender or sexual orientation, because Snyder's insights will help to improve everyone's leadership skills. It's a must-read not only for those interested in diversity issues but also for anyone who seeks to understand the secret of successful executive leadership in today's rapidly changing workplace."
—Kevin Jennings, founder and executive director, GLSEN
